Flee Yourself

Flee Yourself

Running down a pitch dark track
Isolated, don’t look back
Running on to freedom gained
Running ever from the pain

Never turn to face your foes
Never give in to your woes
Never tackle it head on
Never stop, the road be long

Running on till nearly spent
Only then do you repent
And begin to call for your salvation
While creeps behind you, your damnation

Thoughts come on you in a flood
Memories mingled in your blood
Crooked heart begat your evil
Crooked heart held by the devil

And as the nighttime shadows pass
Finally caught up, here at last
The screaming of your fate arrives
Dragged below by gleaming eyes

Hunted

 

On this night
This silent night
Dark clouds dim the moon
And cast the land in shadow

On this flight
This tiresome flight
Weariness eats at me
My muscles gone to stone

On this hunt
This deadly hunt
I wonder if I’ll die
And be dragged to depths below

They have come
Have always come
I’m fleeing like a hare
No safe place to call my home

Shaped of shadows
Always peering
Always leering
Always nearing
Wither shall I go?
